How American Conservatice Republicans Shy from an Israeli Victory

Reader comment on item: Why Israelis Shy from Victory

Submitted by Robert (United States), Sep 6, 2018 at 22:35

Dear Daniel Pipes,

You've placed the onus on Israel regarding a Victory over the Palestinians. But I've been arguing that the Fields of Battle are not where Israeli Forces are Located. In fact, here's where you, as an American Conservative, with significant Political Respectability can contribute to an Israeli Victory.

CAROLE B. GLICK has just published an article regarding, inter alia, the international BDS Movement against Israel. She reveals in her article how the Leftist do-good organization, the Southern Poverty Law Center, has persuaded AIPAC that certain legal restrictions or prohibitions against BDS constitute violations of our cherished First Amendment Right to Free Speech. I personally don't see that because I know that speaking in support of a terrorist organization like ISIS constitutes a federal crime (aiding and abetting the enemy, or something to that effect).

As a consequence, Journalist Glick informs us that a bill currently pending in the House and Senate has been watered down so that boycotting Jews in the West Bank will not be sanctions. However, she also shows that the full, undiluted version may come before the Senate controlled by Republicans.

Here are the details in the matter the matter as reported by Glick:
